"The E-List: Resource Reviews for Teachers of Writing" provides in-depth reviews of listservs which are of interest to teachers of writing. Each review examines a listserv's intended audience and purpose, a taste of what types of discussions take place from day to day, a critical review, and information on subscribing to the list.
On one level, this new section of Kairos apprises educators of available listservs which could assist in the development of instructors' skills as teachers of writing. The other purpose of creating "The E-List" is to re-invent what it means to review text for an academic journal. As we re-imagine what "reviewable text" can mean (the conversations on an electronic forum as compared to more traditional journal articles), the multivocal approach of a resource like the E-List provides commentary and criticism regarding these new forms of textual academic interaction.
Hopefully, you will find though this collaborative project useful scholarly texts available to you electronically via electronic lists. If you are interested in reviewing a list for future issues of this publication, please contact Kairos.
